Mac Build

Has anyone successfully gotten synfig to work on mac? If so can you send me a link to where I can download the binaries, since I’m not much at compiling code.

This is the most commented one:
Only people that have mac can help you.
Meanwhile you can use the Fink packages

Excuse me for being ignorant, but how would install a Fink package?

I’m as ignorant as you. Maybe searching internet with “how do I install a Fink package?” can help you.

Hi everyone,
i have had success installing synfig using fink. it was easy once i realized i had uninstall and remove macports which was causing problems. it runs under x11 buts that fine if you just want to use the program. i will let you know how it runs

make sure that fink can see unstable packages which is not the default. then its as easy as
fink install etl
fink install synfig
fink install synfigstudio


Hi, giantspacebug.
I have Synfig 0.62.00 running on my iMac (Intel Core 2 Duo, 2,4 GHz) but I couldn’t install it on my MacBook (Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz). I did the same steps in both of them, but the installing was only successfully on the first. :confused:
Can you tell me how to uninstall macports? I can’t do it, I don’t know why. Also, Fink doesn’t work (perhaps due to macports). :frowning:

To uninstall macports i used these instructions … lling.html

i had problems with ffmpeg but if you install it seperately from synfig using fink, synfig will be able to use it.
I will keep you posted with other stuff i find.

I have tried this, but without success. I have created a post for this:
Thanks. :wink:
